Corporate jazz trio in the garden

Which secret Canberra garden venue hosted our corporate jazz trio playing for Ronald McDonald House Canberra‘s annual fundraiser? Hotel Kurrajong, of course! This little gem of a courtyard garden provided the gorgeous backdrop for our trio of musicians.

SILK Entertainment’s very own jazz trio were chuffed setting up at the Kurrajong. With pristine lawns, framed by a picturesque fountain – just beautiful. I think we all had a grin as we were setting up for an evening of jazz.

Our corporate jazz trio plays into the night!

Pianist Alan managed to get this happy snap of Tys and Jamal taking on the Kenny Dorham jazz classic, Blue Bossa. Later, we played the Thelonius Monk classic, Blue Monk. The perfect shade of jazz to go with the deep blue sunset sky. We promise we didn’t coordinate the shirts or the playlist to coincide with sky! It was all coincidence – music and nature – and perhaps a common taste in shirts!

We didn’t get a full recording of us playing as a corporate jazz trio this time, but do check out our Facebook page for other videos of us playing.

Thanks and shout outs!

A big thank you to Ronald McDonald House for inviting us again to entertain guests in these beautiful gardens! You run a throughly enjoyable fundraiser! Looking forward to playing for you again next year.

Also, a big shout out to Collector Wines, Clonakilla, Capital Brewing and many of the the other great Canberra region producers who brought fine food and beverages as our jazz trio played into the night.

Game of Thrones Wedding

How does the Game of Thrones, modern nuptials and a Canberra wedding band combine to create romance?…

Groom-to-be: “Will you marry me?”

Bride-to-be: “Will you take my last name?”

Groom-to-be: “Only if you walk down the aisle to the Game of Thrones theme song!”

Bride-to-be (unexpectedly): “Deal!”…

… And thus, he found Canberra wedding band SILK Entertainment – who would play the song that would see him take her name!

Sadly, SILK members were so caught up in the moment on the day, loving the back story and enjoying the sunshine at the Yarralumla Woolshed, we failed to record it, but we will never forget it!

So here it is, a snippet of the reenactment by our jazz trio: Jamal (our very own John Snow), Alan (our Tyroshi merchant straight from the fighting pits of Volantis) and Tyson (of the Night’s Watch). If you want to see the full video and hear the whole thing, visit us on YouTube.

For those who aren’t overly familiar with the tune, you can listen to the original here

To the bride and groom, we thoroughly enjoyed both the challenge, and the faces of your guests as that Game of Thrones drumbeat started.  We also had a wonderful time celebrating after the ceremony with all of you!

You have excellent taste, brilliant sense of humour, and we wish you many happy, fulfilling and fruitful years together – may Winter never come for you!
